I really need an "image" button on the toolbar that they can click - then either upload an image or add in a URL.

While embedding a URL is simple for those who are technically savvy for many normal users its impossible to figure out. 

These are: I have a picture of a kitty on my PC that I want to share with the rest of my group people.  Please consider adding an "image" button that will give the option of uploading or embedding.  Most forums I have been on have this option.

Hi. If paste an image link it should automatically embed already, although the image would need to be uploaded at an external website.

Alternatively, it is possible now to attache an image and submit, then edit the post again, copying the attachment link and pasting that in the post as to embed it as an image. 

This is not to say that a proper image button would be nice in any case though.

The default attachments are not file type sensitive. This code can help to detect images and show those as image. You should put this code in WordPress active theme functions.php file:

add_filter('wpforo_content_after', 'wpforo_default_attachment_image_embed', 11);
function wpforo_default_attachment_image_embed( $content ){
if( preg_match_all('|<a class=\"wpforo\-default\-attachment\" href\=\"([^\"\']+)\"[^><]*>.+?<\/a>|is', $content, $data, PREG_SET_ORDER) ){
foreach($data as $array){
if(isset($array[1])){
$file = $array[1];
$e = strtolower(substr(strrchr($file, '.'), 1));
if( $e === 'jpg' || $e === 'jpeg' || $e === 'png' || $e === 'gif' || $e === 'bmp' || $e === 'webp' ){
$filename = explode('/', $file); $filename = end($filename);
$html = '<a href="' . esc_url($file) . '" target="_blank"><img class="wpforo-default-image-attachment" src="' . esc_url($file) . '" alt="' . esc_attr($filename) . '" title="' . esc_attr($filename) . '" /></a>';
$content = str_replace($array[0], $html, $content);
}
}
}
}
return $content;
}

Hi @dhyanakendra,

We've just checked and the code works fine. Please make sure you've copied the correct code and added in the right place. Then delete all caches and check again.

@robert is it also possible to define what the max size should me after the upload?

Or can it somehow work together with the Imsanity plugin?

@golabs,

You can use this CSS code to set max width to post images. Insert this CSS code in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > Custom CSS Code textarea, save it, delete all caches, go to forum front-end and press Ctrl+F5:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-post .wpf-right .wpforo-post-content img {
    max-width: 60%;
}

What exactly does this code do? 

Does this detetch if the attachment is a photo, then displays it inside the post? If so, can this be edited to show a photo with dynamic resizing? I.e, it fits to the window on both desktop and mobile?

This will replace attached image link to image.

All images in posts are responsive, this is too.
